The concern here is not whether citizens, businesses, and government officials should become reliant on Internet access to government, but the obstacles to that goal and how they may be most effectively overcome. Researchers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Britain, and the US discuss such aspects as the digital divide, the balance between access and security after 9/11, trust in government, citizens' perspectives, and the evaluation of government Web sites.
